Port Neill


Port Neill is an attractive coastal town on the eastern shores of Eyre Peninsula. It is ideal for visitors of all ages. Situated three kilometres off the main Whyalla – Port Lincoln Highway, the town has that quiet attraction, while still within an hour’s drive of Port Lincoln and many other Eyre Peninsula centres. Look for “George” our King George whiting, just five kilometres north of Port Neill.

Port Neill offers one of the cleanest and safest swimming beaches, as well as providing a great venue for fishing, boating, sailing, skiing or skin-diving. The foreshore’s lawns and shelters provide the perfect site for the whole family. They are also within walking distance of the town jetty. Look out for the “Green Shed”. It is the only remaining “Goods” shed and is evidence of Port Neill’s former busy seaport days. The shed has a coin-operated barbecue and seating.

Port Neill has a hotel, caravan park and holiday flats. Sporting and recreational facilities include the town oval, tennis courts, golf course and bowling green. The Port Neill boat ramp and breakwater is located on the southern side of the bay and leads into deep water. It provides an all-weather launching site. Port Neill is serviced daily by Stateliner Coach, which travels to and from Adelaide/Port Lincoln.
